Gore: Iggles a bunch of quitters

In the wake of a 24-23 win over the Eagles, in which Philadelphia squandered a 20-point lead, 49ers running back Frank Gore suggested the Eagles quit in the second half. 

Gore said today on ESPN's First Take that  "I think playing that second half and the way we came out, the Eagles didn't want to play no more. He said the Eagles are no "Dream Team," but more like a team that doesn't want to compete.

"We just kept pounding and kept pounding and making plays, and we kind of knocked the fight out of them," Gore said.

When informed of Gore's comments, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick defended his team. 

"I don't think the team quit," Vick told reporters. "We put up an effort for four quarters. He can say that. We can't dwell on last week."

The Eagles are 1-3 and face the 3-1 Bills on Sunday in Buffalo.
